Music Theory & Counterpoint
If you're serious about being an effective composer or songwriter, you must learn the concepts behind the foundation of modern music: pitch, rhythm, scales, intervals, chords, melody, and harmony. In this program, you’ll develop the skills professional writers depend on, starting with music theory and ear training. Then, you’ll dive into counterpoint, the technique of writing simultaneous, independent melodic lines, which has enhanced music by everyone from Bach to Bowie. Regardless of genre, the skills you learn in this program will help you take the next step in writing compelling music.
